History of the Ethical Principle.

There is no specific date of its foundation, but the principal has existed in similar forms in ancient societies. Perhaps the most clear-cut modern examples are humanitarian groups.

Immanuel Kant

Applications of Ethical Universalism?

For ethical universalism to apply to anything, a system which determines the implications of an act must be defined. Since no two beings can share identical life experience, and therefore beliefs, there is no way to define a universal set of morals. Circumstance must be also considered as there are moral beliefs which may directly conflict with another.

Hitler’s rationalization for his actions was that the end justified the means.
